JIS to Focus on Enhancing Communication Between Gov’t and the Public


The Jamaica Information Service (JIS), this financial year, will concentrate on enhancing communication between government and the public by introducing mechanisms to capture and reflect the views of citizens of the country.
Minister of Information and Development, Donald Buchanan in his contribution to the Sectoral Debate in the House of Representatives yesterday (June 5), said the intent is to ensure that “public feedback can be brought to the attention of the government in a structured and dependable framework.”
In addition, he said, there will be innovations in the promotion of the systems and activities of the government, to keep citizens informed about initiatives being implemented to address their needs and concerns.
“The JIS will also increasingly devote more attention to providing national public information geared towards enabling more Jamaicans to understand and accept their responsibilities as members of the Jamaican society,” he told the House.
